Tanzania Smallholder Farmers Improving Crop Yields

December 5, 2019


What we’ve got here is a very typical field
in the southern highlands. It’s a high rainfall area, but as you can
see the crops are not performing. Person’s gone through a lot of work here, preparing the land manually, and he’s let down because the soil is incapacitated at the moment. It has got no nutrients, it’s got acidity problems, nutrients have leached for many years. I wouldn’t say we’re going to produce more than one tonne per hectare here. But ultimately, land potential is 15 tonnes per hectare in this area. You know, there’s a lot to share with a smallholder farmer, a lot for them to understand. Farming is not rocket science, it’s more
complicated than that. We’ve made a big investment on soil nutrients, liming programs, the right machinery, the right crew and things are happening fast. We’ve figured out the equation. To have this going on in front of everyone’s
eyes, it’s good for everyone.
